In the restraining order obtained by PEOPLE, Jones claims that Henricks became more abusive after their marriage. “He calls me a wh*re and accused me of infidelity regularly, and been incredibly jealous of long-ago boyfriends with whom I have no contact,” Jones alleges in the restraining order filings.

In 2017, Henricks allegedly caused Jones to have a spinal fracture in her hand, which required surgery. She exposed Henricks as a substance abuser and an alcoholic, writing that he would even drive with an  “open container in his drink holder even while leaving work.”

Jones also revealed that Henricks became suicidal after drinking and using drugs. In July 2018, she found Joel with a belt around his neck. "He said he did not want to live. He had continued to drink heavily and to abuse prescription medication," she said. 

On the night of August 16, Joel accused her of cheating on him again. She left with Hayden the next morning. According to Jones, Joel continued to stalk and harass her after she left. Joel has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Jones and their son.
